Meek Mill‘s attorneys have requested that his assigned judge, Judge Genece Brinkley, be removed from his case.
This is the second petition for her removal that the team has made to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.
The legal team alleges that Judge Brinkley has “exceeded the judicial role by sometimes essentially acting as a prosecutor and, at other times, taking an unusual interest in, and trying to inject herself into, Meek Mill’s personal and professional life.”
The team is also alleging that Judge Brinkley’s attorney, Charles Peruto Jr., has commented on the case to the media and that he allegedly threatened to sue both Mill’s legal and management team.
Meek Mill’s legal team claims also that the case “involves a pattern of judicial misconduct that has prejudiced the rights of a probationer and threatens to undermine the public’s confidence in the integrity of the judicial system.”
